‘JEALOUSY LED TO TAHFIZ BOY’S MURDER’
Police say a group of students attacked victim as he was pampered by caretakers
BEING the youngest student at his religious school, Mohammad Aimin Nurul Amin, 7, was doted by the married couple who ran the centre.
Little did Aimin realise that his close ties with the couple, who were his teacher (the husband) and warden (the wife), had led to jealousy among a group of students there, who were believed to have attacked him.
Aimin, who died on Thursday, had bruises on his body.
State police chief Datuk Abd Jalil Hassan said jealousy led to a group of students at the religious school in Kampung Kuala Kuang, Lanchang, Temerloh, to attack Aimin and hit him with a hard object.
He said Aimin, the youngest among the students, was pampered by the couple who operated the centre.
“The students were envious, leading them to have a fight with Aimin.
“A post-mortem revealed that Aimin’s injuries could have been inflicted by a blunt and hard object. The impact of the attack led to trauma on the chest and abdomen.”
Jalil said three suspects, all 13, including the victim’s stepbrother, had been remanded until Thursday.
Aimin, who was found with severe bruises on his body and face, died at the Lanchang health clinic in Temerloh about 2pm.
Earlier, the warden tried to wake Aimin up for prayers about 1pm and realised that his legs were cold. She and her husband rushed Aimin to the clinic.
The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
